Product Description

This charming lesbian drama tells the tale of an undocumented Mexican nanny, Margarita (Nicola Correia Damude, De Grassi: The Next Generation) whose girlfriend Jane (Christine Horne, Tru Love) is reluctant to commit and whose yuppie employers a nice Toronto family with money problems are about to let her go. A warm and funny crowd-pleaser, the film features an excellent supporting cast that includes Patrick McKenna (The Red Green Show) and teen star Maya Ritter (Finn s Girl).

A potent cocktail of heart, humor, and humanity. --Sound on Sight

What a charmer Margarita is!... Plays like an indie relative of Mary Poppins with a LGBT twist or like Canada s answer to The Kids Are All Right... --Cinemablographer

I thought this film lacked character development and depth. The dialogue and the acting felt superficial and forced. Ironically, the friendship most believable and genuine appeared to be between Margarita and Carlos. Nicola Correia Damude's Magarita came across as a sincere and very likable character and she,a very capable actress. As with many lesbian films, content and character development was replaced with gratuitous sex scenes that neither developed the plot nor the character.

I was confused how a family that lived with and "loved" Margarita for six years; treated her like family, could devolve and crumble the way they did in this film. I think the crumbling is possible, given the circumstances, but the story itself didnt't translate well to the screen because of the superficial acting. The story is a good one and makes an earnest effort to illuminate the struggles illegal immigrants face in this country. I expected more from this film and was left feeling a little disappointed.

Margarita is a good example of entertaining and intelligent indepenent film making. Here you find a great story competent actors and a charismatic lead actress. What a delight to find a story where the main character is a lesbian, but the story involves so many more issues. Margarita is an illegal immigrant in Canada and the family she has worked for are letting her go after 6 years, so she need to get married or be deported. This dilemma she faces gives rise to both dramatic and comedic plot development which is very satisfyingly resolved. What a great country Canada is, where same sex marriage is legal, if only Australia, where I live was as enlightened!

I admit that I had low expectations for this film. After reading some of the reviews and after having just seen Concussion, I figured this movie was just another piece of garbage.

But I couldn't have been more wrong! I cannot wait to watch it again. The main character, Margarita, is rip-roaring funny. She has a pleasant accent and a sarcastic wit that kept me laughing. Nicole Correia-Damude, who played "Margarita", absolutely sold this movie!!! Her performance is AMAZING!!! Patrick McKenna and Maya Ritter also did superbly, and their performances really helped bring the movie together.

The story is relatable given the current worldwide economical turmoil. Many people/families have found themselves in similar circumstances and are forced to resort to drastic measures. This background isn't meant to imply that the movie is "heavy" in any way. The directors were able to keep the movie light through comedy. The story still makes the audience think about immigration issues and the effect of difficult financial times on families, marriages, children, and employment relationships.

The chemistry between Margarita and her girlfriend Jane was iffy. I think that the directors should have cast someone else as Jane because Christine Horne's performance wasn't really memorable. However, Nicole Correia-Damude, playing "Margarita", had enough passion for both of them.

Bravo on an excellent movie! I'm glad that I bought it. As far as I'm concerned, it is tied for 1st place with "Kiss Me" and "Out At The Wedding".

Margarita is a Nanny to a high flying couple with a fourteen year old daughter. She has been with them a number of years and seems to do everything for them as well as being the daughter’s best friend, teacher and confidante. She is also a lesbian and has a girlfriend who seems to want to keep her at arms length outside of their physical relationship. Well the couple Ben and Gail have had a run of bad luck in the cash flow department. A string of bad investments and bad career choices has left them financially embarrassed.

Well they have to make cutbacks and so they have to think the unthinkable and ‘let Margarita go’. Margarita, meanwhile, has spotted the slide in their fortunes and has been doing economy measures for some time, as well as fixing computes, mending the gutter, clearing the drive and servicing the hot tub – she is also drop dead gorgeous. Well once they have told her that she has to go the consequences for everyone become very apparent, very quick – and that’s when they find out she is also an illegal immigrant.

This is just a wonderful film, Nicola Correia Damude (’Havana 57’) as Margarita is sensational but a special word has to be said for Patrick McKenna as Ben who is marvellous, funny, and an all round entertainer who you can’t help feeling sorry for him even when he is trying to fire Margarita. Everyone is great in this and the direction is excellent from Dominique Cardona and Laurie Colbert they worked together before on ‘Finn’s Girl’ so they knew they could deliver and deliver they have in absolute spades. One of the best films I have seen for ages and I can not recommend highly enough – a comedy with social comment and a bucket of human emotion and it’s Canadian – what is not to like?

Margarita is a simple movie, but thestory in this movie,
is so good, but whatever you may think may happen,
well, its don't.
the movie starts with a rich couple getting there towed!
than, after that, we find out they also have a nanny,
that basically does everything for them ,
encluding rasing there daughter,
than the couple figures out they have money going out than have
coming in, so they argue & decide they need to let there,
Nanny go, so they can save money,
the family sees her as part of the family and neither the hubby or wife,
wants to tell her.
they finally do it together, than they realise that she is in the U.S illegally,
so, the couple decides , since they want margarita to stay in the country,
and they know they cannot afford to go to court, so the couple talks
about how they will keep her here,
btw, the couple is NOT married, they are only common law,
the wife decides well, the her hubby could marry Margarita,
and she could stay here, margarita decides since she is a lesbian, '
thats not a good idea for her, so the wife gets a great idea,
why don't she marry Margarita, the courts would understand that,
but Margarita has a girlfriend that doesn't want to marry her
to much has been said about this movie,
so whatch the movie and see what happens,
it will surprise you.
again , what you think should happen , doesn't!!
i would recommend this movie to any person wanting to learn
about things in a lesbian relationship!!
